So you’ve just tied the knot in the beauty of the Cotswolds. Why bother going on a big holiday elsewhere when you’re in a dream tourist destination right here? Stick to the Cotswolds, have three or four days just to yourselves and then book a big honeymoon for next year or if you’re trying to save money, having just a minimoon is a great way to do it! This is the perfect location, and here’s why…
Home to the Most Romantic Street in Britain
Yes, the Cotswolds is home to Copse Hill Road, a road in the not so romantic sounding Lower Slaughter. This town however is like a chocolate box town, and the particular street runs alongside a pretty stream lined with lush green trees and beautiful stone cottages. Walk hand in hand and just embrace the general atmosphere of this stunning place.
The Countryside is Phenomenal
If you just want insane views that you would travel miles for, go to the Cotswolds! The views are unrivalled. Take photos, hike, cycle and even ride in a hot air balloon above acres and acres of gorgeous country fields.
Chocolate Box Towns and Villages
You know those chocolate boxes you get with pictures of quaint British villages? That’s pretty much every town and village in the Cotswolds. Picture perfect, old buildings, beautiful greenery and especially pristine with a layer of untouched snow. You can’t get much more romantic than that!
Laid Back and Relaxing
You’re not in a busy city and there’s not a long itinerary to follow. Just wander aimlessly from village to village, popping into pubs and restaurants along the way, walking the dog and nipping into different interiors shops and clothing boutiques.
Idyllic Cities on the Periphery
If you’re more of a city dweller, some of the most beautiful cities in the country are just bordering the Cotswolds. Visit Cheltenham, home of famous horse races and various city festivals or Bath, famous for its natural hot springs and stunning Georgian architecture.
Stunning Gardens to Visit
The Secret Garden come to life is pretty much all the gardens in the Cotswolds. Visit the vast selection of stately home gardens and walk along thatched cottages with their picket fences and overflowing flower beds filled with colour. The Cotswolds is especially lovely in lavender season.
If you’re big fans of literary, this is the perfect place to come. First of all, it has peace and quiet and second of all, it has inspired so many of the greats just with its natural way of being. The likes of JRR Tolkien, Beatrix Potter and JM Barrie have taken inspiration from the little stone villages and unique vistas.
So as you can see, there are some incredible places to visit and so many reasons to tour the Cotswolds after your wedding in the area. Still on the hunt for a wedding venue around the Cotswolds? Just click the link below!
